Welcome to Tower City Chorus


Thank you for visiting Tower City Chorus.  Tower City Chorus is the oldest Barbershop Chapter east of the Mississippi River.  In January 2020 we celebrated our 80th year with the Barbershop Harmony Society (formally known as the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America).  Please look through our web site and contact us if you have any questions or would like to hear us sing.

About The Chorus

Under the direction of Jim Koenig, The Tower City Chorus is an all male Barbershop Harmony Chorus that entertains large and small audiences throughout the Greater Cleveland Area.  The Chorus has been ringing chords since 1940, at a variety of venues, such as theaters, hotels, retirement homes, church halls, festivals, and other special events. The Tower City Chorus sings a variety of music from the old standards such as “Good Bye My Coney Island Baby”, “Lida Rose” from the musical “The Music Man” to ballads such as “What A Wonderful World”, “Dream A Little Dream of Me”.  We also sing genres such as patriotic, religious, show tunes, and many other styles of music from many different generations.

Tower City Chorus has a group that we call the “Midday Singers” that can bring some Barbershop Music to your event at your location.  This group typically performs at Nursing Homes and Retirement Communities and other special events or festivities as requested.

If you would like to contact us about the chorus or one of our chapter Quartets, please call 440-447-0531, or email us at TowerCityChorus@gmail.com, or visit us on Facebook at TowerCityChorus.
